Quarterly Newsletter, February 2017

From the January swoon, to the BREXIT vote in June, to the surprising presidential election in November, stocks rode a wave of volatility with generally an upward bias in 2016. Now that 2016 is over, we would like to reflect on a few events that we believe will impact...
